Star Wars: The Power Unleashed Might Be The Inspiration For A Big Plot Twist In The Rise Of Skywalker
A month in the past, the distinctive YouTube channel Star Wars Concept provided up a brand new tackle Rey’s parentage: she could also be a clone. This loopy thought gained extra traction yesterday, when new footage for J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker confirmed Rey in black garb with a crimson double-sided lightsaber.
Rey could in actual fact flip to the darkish facet within the movie, however I’ve a sense she will not. We’ll as an alternative see a number of Rey clones, maybe dozens of them, all serving The Emperor, aside from one in every of them: the Rey we’ve been following since we met her on Jakku. She’s going to stay on the sunshine facet.
In Rian Johnson’s Star Wars: The Final Jedi, we had been led to imagine Rey’s mother and father had been insignificant, drunken nobodies. Which will nonetheless be the case in The Rise of Skywalker, however I’ve a sense we will be taught she was adopted. The blood in her veins shall be from Jedi that had been utilized in a cloning experiment. The cave sequence in The Final Jedi mainly confirmed us the idea of clones. Despite the fact that she was trying in a mirror, when Rey snapped her fingers, the timing was totally different, implying one thing is off, nearly like every one had unbiased thought and had been repeating the actions of the actual Rey.
Keep in mind when George Lucas did not suppose he would make any extra Star Wars films after the prequels and as an alternative centered on totally different tasks, comparable to video video games? A few of his concepts for episodes seven by 9 could have been utilized in these tasks. Within the Star Wars: The Power Unleashed video games, as an example, The Emperor and Darth Vader had been attempting to create force-sensitive clones.
The clones that did not prove had been discarded. Might Rey be a discarded clone that was smuggled away from the cloning facility? I’ve a sense we will see one thing like that. I additionally suppose we will be taught that her bloodline is a fusion of a few of the strongest Jedi and Sith thus far, together with The Emperor’s.
Check out Star Wars Concept’s take from a month in the past, and chime in along with your ideas within the feedback part beneath. We do not have lengthy to attend to seek out out, as The Rise of Skywalker hits theaters on December 20.
